This simple table was my first polished furniture construction project. The wood is cherry. Go to my website and click on Projects where I have loaded a couple pictures of outdoor benches, one from Norm Abrams’ plans and the other just from a picture.

I’ll have more to share and chat about and start chatting about your works, too.


-- Peace, LJ

Love the colours of the wood.
Really Nice!!

Hello, Drew. 3/8” Forstner bit countersunk for a buglehead screw into a predrilled hole thru leg into table piece edges. Then I used plugs cut from the cherry to fill in holes.

Cherry’s the greatest. This is really good work LPJ. Give us some more to look at.
